HARTFORD, Conn. (March 18, 2015) – Today, Connecticut State Dental Association (CSDA) members met face-to-face with elected officials at the association’s annual Dental Day event. The morning began with a breakfast at the Legislative Office Building with 26 CSDA member dentists from across Connecticut in attendance. Members then met with their legislators.

Throughout the year, the CSDA is actively engaged with key legislators and committees to promote access to quality dental care for all of Connecticut’s residents. Dental Day at the Capital provides an opportunity for CSDA members to meet directly with elected officials to express their opinions on the current state of dental and oral health care issues in Connecticut.

“Dental Day is a wonderful opportunity for our members to show legislators how we are improving dental and oral care every day here in Connecticut,” said Dr. Jeffrey Berkley, CSDA President. “We have one of the best rates of access to care in the country - in fact, Connecticut is a national model for other states looking to increase their access to care. We care deeply about the dental and oral healthcare of Connecticut citizens, and we want our legislators to know what we do to improve it.”
